Abstract

ALMODIN, Juliana; ALMODIN, Flavia; DALL'OGLIO, Lincoln  and  DANTAS, Isabella. Travoprosta 0,004% efficacy in intraocular pressure in patients with glaucoma. Rev. bras.oftalmol. [online]. 2019, vol.78, n.1, pp.27-29. ISSN 0034-7280.  https://doi.org/10.5935/0034-7280.20190006.

Objective:

to evaluate how much decreases intraocular pressure (IOP) with TRAVAMED® (travoprost 0,004%) (Germed, Brazil) in patients with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) and ocular hypertension (OH) and possible side effects.

Methods:

controlled and randomized study, it was evaluated 70 eyes of 38 patients with age of 18 years old or more diagnosed with POAG and OH. All the patients had TRAVAMED® as first drop for treatment used once daily (at night) and 30 days later they had IOP measured by Goldmann tonometry, with the same examiner in the same tonometer at the same times.

Results:

the mean decrease in IOP was 7,46 mmHg after 30 days using the drops. 15.71% (11) of eyes had conjunctival redness, 8.57% (6) had pain, 8.57% (6) had burning, 2.86% (2) had blurring vision and 1.56% (1) of the eyes there wasn’t a significant reduction in IOP.

Conclusion:

TRAVAMED® was efficient when evaluating IOP decrease. The most correlated side effects were conjunctival redness (15.71%), pain (8.57%) and burning (8.57%), but studies with longer follow-up are needed.
